I've been on the Fayne bandwagon as well, but watching him this preseason it seemed like there was something missing from him. The number 7 thing has been throwing me off too, so I don't know.

Greene, Larsson, Salvador, Zidlicky are all better than Fayne. He's the 5th or 6th best defenseman on the roster, and he would be lower if any of the kids made the team.

Sometime during the series with Philly 2 years ago, Pierre dedicated a moment of his in-game blabbering to talk about Fayne. He was set to be a RFA at season's end, and Pierre had mentioned that he had caught the attention, and impresseed, of a lot of scouts across the league.

If the Devils can't find a place for him (which, please, I hope they do) - hopefully we do get a nice return for him.
I got into a conversation with a scout not too long and when he found out I was a Devils fan, Fayne is one of the first players he brought up. He definitely has a lot of eyes on him - and it's another contract year.

Really hope they make room for him. Can't imagine Lou wants to see a Providence guy get lost in the fold.

Not having Fayne in our lineup isn't that big of a deal for me but when you're icing Volchenkov and Salvador instead of Fayne, to me, that's nothing short of troubling.

I'd take Fayne the hockey player over Salvador the current hockey player right now easily.

hes a solid mobile shutdown DMan and is one of the only guys who is consistently good at clearing the zone.

those do not grow on trees.

Salvador and Zidlicky are not better than Fayne

I love how you bring up the fact that Fayne "makes mistakes" but dont say the same for Zids, who makes 3x as many.

Except for the fact Zid actually contributes offensively. I like Fayne and rather him than Volch but I rather have Lars, Zid, and Greene over him. But it's not like it is a great loss if we lose him.

Zidlicky is atrocious defensively.

I personally am not fond of him offensively either. He never hits the net on slap shots, often times makes boneheaded plays, if he tries to protect the puck with one hand on his stick and then throw it to the net softly one more time I might break my TV. He has some talent, but I'd personally rather have Gelinas here who probably brings more offensively to the table considering his shot, and watch him make rookie mistakes than Zidlicky.

In my opinion, Greene should just be given more freedom. He can contribute offensively but unlike Zidlicky he is very smart about it. He knows when and when not to take risks.

Patrik Elias said his "mysterious injury is gone" and he'll be "fine" to play opener Thursday in Pittsburgh

The way its worded, it sounds like , "I dont need to be put on IR anymore, Lou figured out a way"

The great thing about Fayne is his contract; especially when compared to Volch's.

The same can be said for Salvador when comparing to Volchenkov....

The fact that they continue to think Harrold is a better option than Fayne is mind boggling

trade?

they can still do one paper transaction with Larsson but yea.. they're going to need to open one more roster spot

unless they do something funky with Marty.. maybe there's some way under the CBA they can give him a few days to be with his family while opening up a roster spot? i dunno
